Students have two (2) options to earn a high school equivalency diploma:

  • GED® – Computer-based only; four (4) subjects: Reasoning through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies & Math
    (GED Test Fee – $80 or $20 per subject)
  • HiSET® – Computer-based or paper-pencil; five (5) subjects: Reading, Writing, Science, Social Studies & Math
    (HiSET® Test Fee -$10.75 per subject CBT | $15 per subject PBT)

Once a student has successfully passed all sections of the High School Equivalency Test, he/she is awarded a High School Equivalency Diploma, issued by the State Board of Community Colleges.
